Weekly Fuel Update: 8th May 2024

  • Orion Office Closure - Friday 17th May - Due to urgent work planned in Fyfield by Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks, we will have no power throughout the day on Friday 17th May and have, therefore, regrettably taken the decision to close the office for the day. It will not be possible to provide a service without power, however, there will be a facility in place whereby you can leave telephone messages, however PLEASE NOTE, these will not be acted upon until Monday 20th May. As a result of the above, the cut-off for orders will be 4pm on Thursday 16th May, so please bear this in mind, especially if requiring anything urgent.

  • Fuel Cards - Did you know that Fuel Cards are available via the Group. Already being used by a number of members, they offer the convenience of monthly billing via your Orion account, savings with consistent pricing and a broad range of card options, all with no transaction fees. Please contact the office if you would like more details.
